Living on the volcanic edge in Iceland

Iceland’s been bracing for a volcanic eruption for weeks. We look at what it’s like to live under that threat.

A spike in seismic activity and the imminent threat of a volcanic eruption in Iceland has displaced the town of Grindavik, located near the country's famous Blue Lagoon and a massive geothermal power plant. We hear from Hanna Evensen who's been going into the danger zone to rescue residents' pets and Ragga Agustsdottir, the co-founder of Lava Show Iceland, about the challenges and benefits of living in a hotbed of volcanic activity.
